    Sometimes I want to play SNK fighters.

    Then I look around and find that I am not currently located in either Mexico, China, or Korea (imagine my surprise!) and therefore, no one ever plays SNK.

    Cue people saying how Garou really is a good game, like a more balanced Third Strike. Point out how none of them have actually played Garou...

    I picked this up on the PS2 when it came out, so I'm not sure if I'm going to get this.

    Also, while I like MOTW,I don't really see how anyone could really say it was like a more balanced third strike. It's a good game and all, but really?

    Garou just seems to be the game that drums up the most parroted bs.

    I actually don't have a problem with it other than finding it boring.

    Is it like Fatal Fury Special in that it has shit net code and no local multiplayer?
    That made complete sense...

    I need more SNK fighters. I love Garou, spent a lot of time playing it both in a cabinet and on the Dreamcast. Never got much play time with NGBC, if the netcode is good then I definitely will pick this up.

    I think KOF 2002 Ultimate Match is coming out on xbla soon as well. I just don't recall them actually releasing a date for it yet.

    Love MOTW. I find the characters more interesting than the ones in 3S. However, this thread is about NGBC.

    NGBC is great. If the netcode is good, I'll be all over this.

    No idea on Net-Code as no-one else is online or I simply cant find anyone, being trying for a while :/ The ingame graphics are terrible, I know KOF sprites have always been just ok but it doesn't look pretty. Yet it plays very well. (read: fun)

    Its still no KOF XI though :D

    I don't remember seeing the original in the arcade more than once, so I can't say for sure -but, yeah, it looks like they may have redone the attract screen graphics but the game's sprites are pixilated Neo Geo fare. The demo was fun though.
    Still, I just bought Rocket Knight and Snoopy -I might purchase this, but not anytime soon.
